    From Expression to Impact: The Uses of Arts-Based Experiential Learning in Leadership and Personal Coaching

    CCEU: 1 CC, .5 RD


    Description: 

    Art has inspired, perplexed and dazzled humans for millennia.

    From cave paintings 30,000 years ago to more modern masters such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Frida Kahlo. From the tribal chanting by ancient firesides to the majestic symphonies of Beethoven and jazz riffs of Thelonious Monk. From the tragedies of Sophocles to the modern brilliance of Lillian Hellman and Arthur Miller.

    So what do the visual arts, music, theatre, dance and movement have to do with coaching?

    Everything!

    Recent research has proven the power of the arts to impact leadership development, promote collaboration, ignite innovation and provide tools for navigating personal, professional and organizational change.

    Over the past two decades Fred Mandell, along with Harvey Seifter, have been pioneers in the field of arts-based experiential learning. Their firm Creating Futures That Work® is the world’s leading provider of experiential learning that uses the arts to help leaders create dynamic, successful and sustainable futures.

    They are now bringing their research, arts-based experiential activities, exercises and workshops to the coaching community along with their unique innovation skills assessment.

    In this program Fred will share the science, research and theory supporting arts-based experiential learning. He will bring program participants through actual arts-based experiential exercises. And he will present actual use cases to demonstrate how arts-based experiential learning in action can impact leaders their teams and individuals making personal transitions. We will examine two actual use cases as a way to demonstrate the what, how and outcomes of selective coaching relationships. One use case will focus on leadership development within a Fortune 500 company and the other will focus on a personal transition journey.
    Do not attend this program unless you are willing to get your hands dirty and your minds turned upside down. Even in the comfort of your own home or office.

    Learning Objectives:
    Participants will walk away with:

    ● An understanding of the theory and science behind ABEL
    ● Practical examples of arts-based experiential exercises immediately implementable by participants
    ● Research based data which demonstrates the impact of ABEL on individuals and teams
    ● Introduction to a breakthrough method for measuring impact of training on learners.

    Mini Habits: A Small Tool for Big Success

    with James Garrett

    CCEUs- 0.75 Core Competencies and .25 Resource Development

    "Habits are our brain's go-to tool to tackle almost any goal or task, which is why helping your clients get in the driver’s seat of their habit-making machinery can be a game-changer. You’ll walk away with everything you need to help your clients know to start making measurable change. Just like learning how to play the piano, learning how to form positive habits is a skill set. You'll discover:

    • Why the key to knocking out habits is building them sequentially, not simultaneously
    • How to use proven methods like ""habit stacking"" and ""habit tracking"" to make or break any habit
    • Why keeping your client motivated is easy with one small tweak
    • How motivation often follows action, rather than preceding it
    • How making “smallifying” their habits can be the game-changer you and your coaching client have been looking for

    Attendees will learn concrete strategies and habit-building systems that will de-mystify why habit-building and behavior change are so hard, and how you can help your clients overcome their internal obstacles"

    "By the end of this session, coaches will be able to:

    -Develop habit plans with their clients that are attainable, measurable, and specific.

    -Design accountability systems and tracking tools with their clients that simplify complex behaviors and give their clients concrete ways to track their progress.

    -Identify when and where habits are too big, thereby overwhelming the client and decreasing their chance of success.

    -Restructure large habits and goals with the client, modifying them into mini-habits that feel more manageable, achievable, and that build the client’s confidence and belief in their capacity to change.

    -Facilitate their clients through setting appropriate stretch goals, helping clients get out of their comfort zones but not so far that they get overwhelmed."

    Welcome to the ICF Chapter Book Tour

    with author Janet M. Harvey
    (ICF Master Certified Coach, Accredited Coaching Supervisor & Certified Mentor Coach)

    INVITE CHANGE

    Lessons from 2020 The Year of No Return

    Fear & Your Life as You Know It:  Coaching from the Inside Out

    Relevant ICF Core Competency Focus: #2 Embodies a Coaching Mindset, #4 Cultivates Trust and Safety, and #7 Evokes Awareness

    Description:  Fear that stops you from choosing a new path is an illusion yet palpable, present and real.  When perception becomes a truth you adopt without question, you are living out of integrity. Learn to see beyond the surface to the truth of what is, what is real, true and available to then choose an embrace of respect, acceptance and love. Explore how the archetypal journey of human development is inclusive.  It doesn’t discriminate based on gender, culture, economic status, or any other criteria you identify.* As an adult, we’ve forgotten that taking risks and falling down was how we learned, everything. Choose to get back up, inside-out.


    Learning Outcomes

    1.      Discover new ways to explore fear, the emotion that builds resistance to the changes clients most want to pursue.
    2.      Peer practice with ICF core competency skills that support being generative with clients to breakthrough paralyzing fear.
    3.      Pursue choices that evolve your coaching practice toward being more inclusive, equitable and brave.
